Transfer

Your Story, Continued

It's an orientation program specifically focused on helping transfer students make the transition to life as a UNL student.

Because we want all of our students to be successful, we require all transfer students who are admitted and have paid their enrollment deposit to attend New Student Enrollment (NSE).

NSE is a time for you to prepare for your time at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. At NSE, you will meet one-on-one with an academic advisor to review your transcripts and course selections. You will register for your first semester courses and have a chance to meet your fellow Huskers. You will also learn about co-curricular opportunities and how to be a successful student at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln.

NSE Date Options

Dates for NSE are based upon each student's major.

The Explore Center must be selected as the college of choice for all students who are undecided.

  • October 19, 2017
  • November 17, 2017
